Here’s a brand I’ve been enjoying for less than a year and it’s already a favorite. This bottling I’ve been seeking for a while and finally found it at Norfolk Wine and Spirits in MA.
Before I get into a review let me tell you, Norfolk Wine and Spirits is hands down one of my favorite liquor stores. Owner Bikram is knowledgeable; kind and his store is always hosting different events to get you to experience all kinds of spirits. Finally, they have an amazing whisky selection, highly recommended if you are searching in MA. Now onto the whisky!
M&H an Israeli whisky located in Tel Aviv, began operating in 2014. This expression is aged in ex-bourbon casks and finished in fortified pomegranate wine casks for six months.
Nose: pomegranate, vanilla and coffee
Palate: pomegranate, juice and fig
Finish: oak, lightly sweet and sourdough
Now here’s a whisky that doesn’t pull any punches. Wow were the first words that came to mind after my first sip. The minute you taste it, you get hit with the high abv of this cask strength. But here’s the beauty of it, that strength quickly mellows into delicious pomegranate and figs. You get notes of juice, sweetness and at times slight notes of sourdough. This whisky is delicious and like nothing I’ve had before.
I’m honestly quite blown away, but I know this is not for everyone, especially those who don’t like high alcohol content. If you do like strong whiskies and want something different, like pomegranate, this is it. It would also make a great Father’s Day gift. Last I checked Norfolk Wine and Spirits still had bottles available (I don’t know for how much longer) if you were interested. It’s amazing!
